We appreciate the variety of celebrations, including everything from big brand galas and symposiums to an intimate wedding in Portugal. Narrowing down our favorites of the month is a seemingly impossible task — however, these 10 celebrations all put an especially impressive twist on their type of events.

“I mean, could a wedding be more magical? Happiness oozes from every single photo in the gallery. What impresses me most is the seamless flow of this event, with thoughtful designs throughout. From the sunny outdoor ceremony boasting exquisite white and green florals — including the chuppah of my dreams — to the late night reception filled with dancing, saxophones, and In-N-Out Burgers, it’s fair to say that this is pure wedding gold.” — Claire, Content Marketing Manager

“Well, Jason Rhee has outdone himself once again. This sexy yet romantic cocktail party gives off a mysterious theme — wowing guests at this industry gathering. The details are to die for and keep me wanting more. I absolutely love the array of candles and the details in each of the unique floral arrangements. From the craft cocktails to sushi bites, every detail outdoes the next. I just wish I were able to attend this incredible event!” — Jessi, Account Manager

“This is my absolute dream bridal shower — chic, sunny and pink! I’m obsessed with the ombré tablescapes, where magenta florals seamlessly flow from blush to ivory. But the true star of the celebration — aside from the bride-to-be, of course — is the matte pink balloon installation hovering over the pool in a cascading formation (as if the stunning Southern California view needed more enhancement).” — Amanda, Marketing Coordinator

“Cole Drake Events captured organic beauty with this outdoor ceremony. The absence of color is so powerful. Pristine white and contrasting greens of nature allowed the bridal party to be the focal point. I especially love how they covered the chandeliers in greenery to bring natural elements into every detail. The draped linen panels give the feeling of rushing wind, blowing your eye right to the bride and groom. And by the looks of a packed, confetti-filled dance floor, you can tell Downbeat LA definitely killed it at this party!” — Devra, Account Executive

“Chicago natives know that one of the best backdrops the city has to offer is overlooking Grant Park through the windows of Venue SIX10. The creative catering at this event proves there are always more than great ideas happening at the Adobe Symposium — little details like pb&j shooters and coffee with your face on it (yes, you read that right) made this conference a memorable one. The attention to detail, pops of color, and natural light shining through the floor-to-ceiling windows are sure to keep all of your senses awake while at work. Networking and keynote speeches don’t seem so bad after all, huh?” — Nick, Growth Marketing Manager

“This party is a pink neon paradise! I love the photo spot, with its vertical fluorescent lights, hot pink backdrop, and enough space for a big group to get silly for the ‘gram. The tabletop décor is a trippy mix of artistically-bent blooms and opalescent cellophane, the likes of which I’ve never seen before. I appreciate when an event surprises me with something new — and this one does it, as all art should do. Such a fitting design for The Whitney Museum event.” — Pamela, Editor

“Simple, stunning, and so romantic is this South of Portugal wedding. I love the intimacy of the celebration, and how guests were able to mix and mingle at a singular, extended table centered between rows of lush trees — of course, with strung lights overhead. Stunning photography captured the natural beauty of Portugal, with tasteful pops of color brought in by coral florals.” — Colleen, Sales Team Lead

“I am obsessed with the theming of this Bat Mitzvah — it has a fun combination of “Cirque du Scarlett” decor alongside elegant and transformative elements, such as the massive bank vault door that led to an exclusive ping pong room and bright marquee signs that hung above the crowd. How can you forget the cirque du soleil dancers performing throughout the night? I’m sure guests were being constantly entertained with new and exciting activities and giveaways. My invitation must have gotten lost in the mail.” — Morgan, Marketing Associate

“What strikes me about this 50th birthday celebration is the sophistication of a strong theme carried throughout every detail of the event. At first glance, you simply see different pops of distinct jewel tones throughout different parts of the night. But if you take a closer look, you can see how every single detail — from the fine presentation of a canape to the grand statement dance floor — lend themselves elegantly into a full story of the guest of honor’s business success. This event is the essence of PartySlate’s favorite words: “thoughtful and inspired”. — Betsy, Account Executive

“This beautiful oceanfront wedding located at the Eau Palm Beach boasts spectacular views, stunning decor, and lively entertainment — but what really stole the show was the unique, larger-than-life floral arrangements. The suspended floral installation over the dance floor is particularly impressive, framing the space with white roses filled with glass votive suspensions. This wedding brought a design that was fresh and certainly fragrant.” — Mark, Creative Director
